Dyed leg

It is easily distinguished from all other stumps by the pinkish color of the cap, yellowish stem with pink scales, pink, and at the base of the stem with bright yellow pulp, yellow mycelium and pinkish spores. It grows with oak and birch.

This type of mushroom is North American-Asian. In Russia, it is known only in Eastern Siberia (Eastern Sayan) and the Far East. For the pinkish controversy, some authors attribute it not to the genus obabok, but to the genus Tilopil.

The hat is 3-11 cm in diameter, cushion-shaped, often unevenly colored, pink, nutty with olive and lilac tints, felt. The pulp is white. The tubules are up to 1.3 cm long, rather wide, depressed at the stem, creamy, pinkish-gray in young fruiting bodies, pale brown with a pinkish tinge in old ones. Leg 6-11 cm long, 1-2 cm thick, white with purple scales or pink; bright yellow in the lower half or only at the base. The spore powder is chestnut brown.
